    Re: shirts had a chewing gum in its pocket and its colour got stuck on one of my othe

    The gum in my shirt pocket stained my other shirts when Mom did my laundry.

    There only stain will be from actual gum stuck to the shirt though, not from the food coloring bleeding out into the clothes. You seem to be trying to suggest the food coloring in the gum will stain the clothes, versus just having gum stuck to everything.

    Note my version shifts the blame on Mom, instead of it being my fault for not emptying my own pockets.
